Want to up grade my pavillon elite9250m to playCOD Ghosts

Dont know much about computers just wondering if its possible. I would like to play COD ghosts but when i load game i get Directx encountered an unrecoverable error i think its because my card only supports directx 10 should i upgrade GPU ,Memory. Is it worth it and can it be done? Or am i wasting my time.
Specs

core 2 quad Q6400
4 gig ram can go up to 8
350 watt psu
current gpu 8600gt
hard drive 1 tb
Dont want to spend to much money no more then $200.I was looking at gtx750 will that run on my system with what i have? Or should i get a lower grade card ?

Any help or advice would be appeciated.

  1. You will need a new PSU too, what motherboard do you have?
  2. u need a PSU 700w and a nVidia 560Ti want a cheaper GPU u have nVidia 9600gt 620mb that should do it with the 9600gt 620mb u can run it on Medium
  3. This GPU is little better at a better price but I dont know if it the CPU wont bottleneck without overclock but if you plan to get a new mainboard+CPU+RAM in the future you can use the PSU and the GPU too.

  6. Since it has PCI E 1.0 if I see correct then you would have maybe around 10% less performance than with newer mainboards but it is still ok.
  7. What about the new gtx 750 nvidia specs says min 300 watt psu will that work if i upgrade ram to 6 gigs?
    And what do they mean about cpu bottlenecking ?
    Is there any card that will work with out upgrading my psu?


    Thanks again for help

    When a CPU is not strong enough to provide enough data for the GPU it wont work with 100%. If you can open the case and look for the brand and name of the PSU and also what power it deliver on the rails it could work if it is a quality PSU but you would push it to the limit when it works almost at the maximum. RAM uses very low watt numbers, like 3-4watt per 4GB. But first you need to provide more information about the PSU.
